  • BROOKE FLOYD: Charged in Yell County.
A manslaughter charge has been filed against Brooke Floyd related to the incident in which her husband, Brian, and 10-month-old son, Harper, were found dead in a remote area of Yell County.

An arrest warrant released afterward, being reported here by 40/29, indicates both Floyd and her husband were taking meth and believed, perhaps because of hallucinating, they were under attack. Cause of the deaths has not been released and details of the episode remain hazy, including which death is being charged against Brooke Floyd.

UPDATE: Details emerging say an autopsy found the infant died of exposure and abandonment, according to Channel 11.
